Metropolitan Area Application of Vocational Education Innovations Resulting from Research and Development Programs. Final Report, Institute IX, Volume I. Final Report
Valentine, Ivan E.; Lowery, Nelson W.
Fifty vocational educators, including directors of Research Coordinating Units, participated in a 1-week institute designed to identify ways to revitalize vocational education in metropolitan areas. The participants heard and reacted to presentations by five nationally recognized individuals which emphasized change process and educational innovation. Participants also met in small groups to develop models and guidelines useful in implementing change in their home states. On the last day a posttest was administered which indicated participants were generally well pleased with the presentations and overall operation. Also, evidence indicated that a majority of participants had implemented planned program changes as a result of having attended the institute. The five major presentations are available in VT 014 112 in this issue. (Author/JS)
